Stupid Is as Stupid Does

What ignorant BS will they come up with next.


6. Virginia Democrats thinking of law requiring police to fire warning shots!

Once again, the gun-controlling Democrats in the General Assembly show they know nothing, nothing about guns or about police work.  They are the wrong people to ever be in power.

As a one-time law enforcement officer myself, I am shocked at the Democrat legislative wish list for police in the next legislative session (possibly in August).  

Since VCDL focuses on guns, the one that I am concerned with says that officers must fire a warning shot before the use of deadly force!  

For years VCDL has been making sure that our members are aware that firing warning shots is something that should NEVER be done.  Period.  Not into the air, not into the ground.  NEVER.  They are dangerous to innocent people who may be in the area.

    That will ensure carrying a pistol (auto-loader) will be "interesting".

    I am surprised they ever have any ammunition in the magazine.  Every time someone picks up a pistol they rack the slide - presumably throwing another round on the ground.

    I chuckle when I see the cops rack the slide before kicking down the door on a raid.  Don't they normally carry a round in the chamber?

    It's not been mentioned, but seems the leading areas to defund/eliminate law enforcement are in the big cities and states that are controlled (government wise) by DEMOCRATS!! 

    Also, these same cities have the highest crime rates.

    That should tell all exactly what they need to know about keeping themselves and their families SAFE.

    Now they're saying what they meant was that police should be required to shout a warning before shooting. So.... there's an imminent threat to life & the police have to stop & shout a warning, thus giving the perp more time to inflict harm. OK..but.. deadly force is not to be used unless it is immediately necessary to stop harm to another. Any of the times I had to draw down on someone, they didn't need a verbal warning & were smart enough to stop what they were doing.

    Remember back in the '60's when a Drill Instructor could no longer put their hands on a trainee?
    Then a teacher couldn't touch a student - a parent couldn't spank a child - and not a cop can't put their hands on a criminal.
    So ......... when the youth know there is no punishment ..... they become wilder as they grow up ...and they have.
